Ellen Gallant

  • Internal Medicine & Interventional Cardiologist
  • History Making Explorer & Mountaineer
  • Massive Earthquake & Avalanche Survivor

Ellen Gallant is trained as an interventional cardiologist.  In 2002, she discovered the mountains of the Himalayas and, in particular, Everest.  Over the next 12 years IF  she was not working, she was climbing and training to be worthy of that mountain. She found herself at basecamp on April 18, 2014 when an ice release above camp killed 16 climbers. Despite that event, she returned to the Khumbu in 2015 and was again at base camp on April 25 when a massive 7.9 earthquake and avalanche ripped through camp including her own tent, killing 22 climbers plus over 9000 throughout Nepal and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.

Ellen returned to her beloved mountain in the spring of 2017 and finally stood on the summit May 23 at 6:30 a.m., a place that was even more breath taking than she ever imagined.
